Many of you know him as the guy that makes you laugh every two weeks with his shenanigan-filled, unicorn-obsessed, random but totally silly cartoons. We at District of Sound know him as the shenanigan-filled, unicorn-obsessed, random but totally silly Alex B., aka the creator of Adventures in the District, DoS’ exclusive cartoon series. We were lucky enough to catch him between story boards to ask him a few questions so that you can get to know the man behind the magical madness.
After dozens of interviews and reviews we decided to turn the microphone around on us this time and respond to question we periodically receive from readers about the site and local music. The DoS staff writes back to share a few insights into what makes DoS work and how we keep things new and exciting. After all, what better time to re-introduce you to the site than with the re-launch of the site?
What’s the best “method” when it comes to playing, listening, or making music you may ask? DoS turned to one of DC’s favorite local jambands, aptly named “The Method” for the answers. Satya Thallam–horn, guitar and singer extraordinaire from The Method shares with us the secrets for making great music.
